The only thing more exciting than watching Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid, and their fellow lingerie-clad friends walk down the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show runway in Paris? Getting a look behind the scenes while the girls get ready to walk down the runway. And this year, Sarah Potempa — the mastermind behind all 51 models’ looks — and founder of The Beachwaver Co. brought us backstage to watch the stars of the show getting glammed, which we captured in the video above.

So what’s the key to getting their flawless hairstyle? That would be the Beachwaver curling iron (on sale at for $119!). With a push of the tool’s buttons, Potempa is able to perfectly curl Jenner’s hair in seconds, creating that iconic Victoria’s secret wave.

“We’re just creating a nice, loose tousled wave this year,” Potempa tells PEOPLE backstage. “And we also want the girls just to look naturally beautiful. It’s all about getting those gorgeous waves that everybody feels really beautiful in. It’s really kind of creating this look that looks iconic and you can recreate it with The Beachwaver.”

And we’re not the only ones excited about how gorgeous their curls are. Bella Hadid yells, “Have you seen this curl?!”
